As you may know, we have made it our mission to track down green job lists on the web. First we found Smart Company’s Best Green Jobs in The Next Ten Years. Then we scoured the Internet to find other lists. Up until yesterday, we had found 11 additional top green jobs lists. In addition to Fast Company, we also found green jobs lists on Fortune, Hotjobs, CareerBuilder, Greentech Media, Forbes, E Magazine, Super Eco, Inventor’s Spot, Eco Salon and Boston.com. Combined, these lists provided insight into 56 occupations, which we combined into one comprehensive list.
Yesterday, while watching the news coverage of Earth Day, I saw Chuck Leavell, keyboardist for the Rolling Stones and Director of Environmental Affairs for the Mother Nature Network, a web-based eco-guide. During the interview, their article, Seven Green Jobs To Get You Through The Recession, was mentioned. Well, I found it on their web site. The following are the jobs that are most likely to get you through the recession:
1. Wind-turbine factory worker
2. Energy auditor
3. Wind-turbine mechanic
4. Solar-panel installer
5. Green builder
6. Fuel cell engineer
7. Green blogger
The authors say that these jobs should be stable enough to see you through the hard times. What do you think?
